Vevchani (Springs)



Thanks to the celebration of the Labour Day, which in my country is a national holiday, we are able to enjoy a prolonged weekend. When being in Ohrid, often, we like to take a short trip to the village of Vevchani which is located in the southwestern range at the foot of the Jablanica mountain range. It is situated at 800 – 950 metres above sea level. There you can find the most famous springs in the country. Settled in the bosom of the wonderful nature, they are joy for the eyes and the soul.

 

The architecture of the stone houses is amazing and will have you captured at first sight.
 
 
 
One of the most interesting shops in the village is the antiquity shop called "Samovila", which means "A Fairy" and quite appropriate name for it if you ask me, because when you enter it, you find yourself in a world other than the one you know it.
 
 
Behind this house there is a quite charming, ethnic restaurant that serves excellent food called "Domakinska Kuka".

 
It is also a unique ethnical "museum", with lots of old things exhibited in special corners of the restaurant.
 
 
 
If you ever pass through this side of the world, don't miss to visit it!

Vevchani looks absolutely gorgeous! I've visited Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia but never Macedonia - I'm hoping to go there sometime, and this will definitely be on my list of places to visit!
